The emergency room at Gadsden
Community Hospital did not shut
down last Thursday morning. In
fact, according to Thornton
Wlliams, there was no interruption
of services.
"As soon as the county manager
found out about the letter (that the
ER might be closed) he got right on
it," Williams said. *
County manager Marlon Brown
immediately sent a letter to Mike
Lake, CEO of Ashford Healthcare


Systems, the management company
that operates the hospital.
Brown told Lake that Dr. Chook-
iert Emko had received a letter froin
EDCare Management indicating
that emergency room services to the
hospital would be terminated as of
August 25 at 7 a.m.
"Needless to say, this letter raises
great concern regarding the contirni-
ity of care at Gadsden County H6s-
pital. Please let us know what the
situation is regarding emergency
services at the hospital and how

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Bev Kilmer, co-owner of All-Tech
Southeast, announced Friday that
the company had hired its 15th
employee.
The announcement was a result of
All-Tech's need to hire 12 new
employees to satisfy a grant used to
provide infrastructure for the first
phase of the Quincy Business Park
on Joe Adams Road south of
Quincy.
All-Tech and the City of Quincy
have squared off over the past few
months concerning a 2002 Commu-
nity Block Grant from Florida's
Department of Community Affairs.
All-Tech received five acres of the-
park from the City. In return All-
Tech was required to add 12 new

Just what's available to rural coun-
ties and how to get it was the topic
of a daylong workshop held last
Thursday at the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Science (IFAS) in
Quincy.
The 2005 Big Bend Area Counties
Technical Assistance Workshop was
hosted by Rep. Curtis Richardson,
the Flolnda A'soicaiion of Counties,
and the Florida League of Cities. In
all, 75 people from eight counties-
registered and 16 state and federal
agencies were. represented.
"We did this about three years ago
and it was very successful. But I
think this one was even more suc-
cessful," Richardson said. The
counties represented included Gads-
den, Leon, Jefferson, Madison, Tay-
lor, Wakulla, Franklin and Liberty.
Those attending the workshop
were given short courses in how to
access money for everything from
ramps for the elderly to jails for the
criminals.
"The one thing that we brought
away from this that was extremely
important is that if we are going to
go forward we have to begin think-
ing regionally," said Ed Dixon,
chairman of the Gadsden County
Board of County Commissioners.
"I can tell you that you will have a
better chance getting funding from
the federal government if you can
show how a project will benefit
more than one county," said Willie

It is not just "Click it or Ticket"
for Quincy's drivers, it's also "you
better slow down".
With the rising number of traffic
fatalities in Gadsden County,
many caused by excessive speed,
Quincy Police Chief Gerald
McSwain has given the order to
slow traffic downi inside of the
city.
"Death speaks for itself," Major
Glenn Beach said about the speed-
ing crack down.: "We encourage
people for'the sake of their own
lives to slow down." Beach
put it plain and simple, he said that

Commerce. He also advised coua-
ties not to sit back and wait for the
government to offer a program.
"It's easier if you bring an idea go
me and I can get the federal add
state funds. That's how the Family
Dollar Distribution Center got lo
Jackson ,County. We want to see
regional collaboration and we will
do everything within our power to
get you together."
Taylor added that counties should
concentrate on projects that meet
two major crieria that always score
high marks with the federal govern-
ment: creation of jobs and private
sector participation.
Small counties were concerned
that while there are many projects
available, limited staff and limited
resources may prevent them from
applying for grants. Enter the Small
County Technical Assistance Ser-
vices Program.
The program is intended to help
small counties deal with the increas-
ingly heavy demands placed on
their limited financial and staff
resources.
The program was created by the
Florida Association of Counties in
1993. It serves 32counties with pop-
ulations less than 75,000. The pro-
gram allows these counties to
improve the level of employee train-
ing, strengthen overall administra-.
tive and financial capabilities, and
enchance the effectiveness and effi-
ciency of services delivered to citi-
zens.
This is how the program works: a
circuit rider is assigned to each
county. These people have extensive
experience in public mamgemeut
and are able to help on several ley-
els.
Some of the services offered
inclUde supervisory training, gen-
eral and intensive grant assistance,
budget development and financial
forecasting, personnel related poli-
cies, economic development assis-
tance, strategic planning, disaster
relief reporting assistance, aut6-
mated mapping/geographic infor-
mation systems, and executive
recruitment assistance.

$3.6M in grants


*$2,878,000 for
new, better parks
*$757,000 for
development

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
If everything goes according to
plan, the county is set to receive
$3,635,253 or more in grants this
year says Nancy Gee, the county's
grants administrator.
Small counties don't often have
the tax base to provide citizens with
the quality of life enjoyed by people
who live in larger cities.
Simple things like parks -that oth-
ers take for granted can unduly tax
the coffers of small counties that
need to concentrate on roads and
other pressing problems.
The State of Florida understood
the plight of rural and small coun-
ties and several years ago began
providing grant funds through the
Florida Department of Enviromen-
tal Protection in its Division of
Recreation and Parks for a program
called the Florida Recreation Devel-
opment Assistance Program
(FRDAP).
"We have already been the recipi-
ent of one such grant in the Shiloh
Community for $109,000. That park
was completed and dedicated last
year," Gee said.
Two other FRDAP grants have
been funded for this year. Gee said
the county will receive $154,500 to
upgrade the park in the Robertsville
Community.
Currently the park sits nearly
abandoned wedged between two
homes. Weeds have taken over the
area that should be grassy open


space. The swing stands lopsided.
The only piece of equipment that
appears safe is a merry-go-round.
The grant funds will give the park
a new look, with picnic tables and
benches, a wide paved walking trail
with fitness stations, a four-foot
wide tricycle trail, restrooms, new
playground equipment, security
lights, a renovated parking area,
landscaping and safety fencing.
"As you can see there is nothing in
this area as far as recreation and
parks are concerned. The trees that
are here need to be trimmed.
The state can give us grant funds
but the county is going to have to
provide the funds and the manpow-
er to maintain the parks. You can
ask the citizens to keep the parks up,
but that will only go so far," Gee
said.
A few miles south of the
Robertsville Park and off Glory
Road stands the remnants of St.
John Park. The look of St. John Park
is much like that of the one in
Robertsville: overgrown with weeds
and trees, broken playground equip-
ment, no parking, broken grass and
paper on the ground. At the edge of
the property stands a dilapidated
structure that, Gee said, is supposed
to be a place where the community
can hold meetings.
The FRDAP grant will provide
$144,000 to fix up the park with the
same items as Robertsville Park.
South of Quincy, Gee said the
county is set to receive $2.58 mil-
lion to develop a regional park on
what was once a private park for
Weavexx employees.
"That will be 50-plus acres that
will include an enclosed fully con-
tained community building, a nature
trail and a pond for canoeing, picnic
areas, and other outdoor activity

$50,000 raised for W. A. Woodham Scholarship


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

One of Gadsden County's own,
W. A. Woodham was honored by
over 500 of his friends Friday night.
Woodham served as sheriff of
Gadsden County for thirty-three
years before he passed away earlier
this year. His friends
wanted to pay tribute to his
legacy,soo a committee, "One hun-
dred friends of W. A. Woodham,"
was formed.
It was decided that he should be
remembered for his commitment to
the community. And what better
way to do that than to endow a
scholarship in his name to his
beloved Chipola College.
Woodham had grew up on a farm


in south Alabama. He wanted an
education, and with the help of his
brother Felton and part-time jobs he
started college at Chipola. His first
dab at politics came at Chipola,
where he was elected student body
president. Since Chipola
was a Junior College at the time, he
finished college career at Florida
State University.
A stint with the Florida Highway
Patrol and the Juvenile Justice
department as.a counselor would set
the stage for the rest of his life.
Woodham was appointed sheriff in
1971, the youngest sheriff in
Florida. He ran and won his first
election as sheriff and.continued to
hold the office until his retirement
in 2004. He retired as the oldest
continuously elected sheriff in


Florida.
Thanks to last Friday night's
event that scholarship is more than
just a dream, it is now a reality.
More $50,000 was raised to endow
the W. A. Woodham Scholarship at
Chipola College. The interest the
money generates will be used to
help deserving young men or
women, who, like Woodham want
to further their education.
His daughter Laurie Beth said, as
she spoke to the crowd about her
dad, that the scholarship was some-
thing he would have been proud of.
"It was something he would have
liked to have created himself," she
said.
"It was really a great evening. It
was -an event we were very proud.
of," Charles McClellan one of the


committee members said about the
event. McClellan said that money
from Chipola alumni as far away as
Montana was sent to honor their
friend and fellow Chipola graduate.
Sheriff David Harvey from
Wakulla County was the key
speaker and brought a $5,000 check
for the scholarship from the Florida
Sheriff's Association. Harvey
said that Woodham had been his
mentor, someone he had called on
when he needed advice.
Master of ceremonies, former
Florida Representative Robert
Trammell, said that Woodham was
the type of sheriff who treated
everyone the same. One feature, he
said, that had helped him over the
years continue to-be re-elected.
For some it was a way of adding


Chattahoochee man arrested in drug bust


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Even the sheriff was surprised.
Drugs were allegedly being sold and
consumed on one of Chatta-
hoochee's main streets, one block
from the police station.
After a two week drug investiga-
tion, the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department drug unit and the Chat-
tahoochee Police Department,
armed with a search warrant, went
to search Rentz Service arid Gas sta;
tion and arrest Bobby Rentz, 48, of
Chattahoochee on drug charges.
Rentz, who was not present when
the station was searched, was not
taken into. custody last week. He
surrendered himself to authorities at
the Gadsden. County Jail Monday
afternoon.
He was charged with possession
with intent to sell marijuana, posses-
sion of cocaine, and maintaining a
dwelling where controlled sub-
stances are sold, consumed, and
stored. ,

Havana town council questions county's fire contract


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Havana lot\n council' mereibers
found themselves in a bit of contro-
versy Tuesday morning.
The council heard a report from
town manager Susan Freiden about
the yearly contract with the county
concerning fire services. The con-
tract awards the city,$56,912 for fire
services provided to the county.
Freiden said she was not comfort-
able with the wording in the contract
and voiced those concerns to the
council. She felt the contract was
slightly one sided in the favor of the
county.
The contract states "Gadsden
(county) may terminate this agree-
ment, in whole or part, upon written
notice and a sixty-day (60) termina-
tion period. Havana may terminate
this agreement upon written notice
and six (6) month transition period."
Freiden did not feel the wording
put the city in a positive posture
concerning the contract. "We' r e
not here to fight, just address some


issues," Freiden said.;

cent and in 2002 it was 88 percent.
"Most of the calls are not here,"
Freiden said.She felt the contract
just' needed to be fair to all of the
participants.
In addition to the wording Frei-
den said the county was requiring an
itemized statement on the items the
city would use the money for.

Jessica Lunsford Act: a good thing


background checks will save children's lives


It's all in a song

A lot of people came out to support their friend W.A. Woodham


It's an inconvenience for some to be finger-
printed and to undergo a background check
in order to come.into contact with children"
who attend public schools. It's a by-product
of the Jessica Lundsford Act. As you may
recall, Jessica Lundsford was the little
Homosassa Springs girl who was taken from
her home and later raped and murdered.
While the person who was eventually
arrested for murdering Jessica had no. con-
nectioi with her school, members of the
Florida Legislature felt that some safeguards
had to be put in place to protect the young.
The one area over which they had some con-
trol was the area where most children con-
gregate: the schools: And so, as of September
, anyone who comes in contact with chil-

I don't think it's a bad idea either. If it
vill prevent one child from being pounced

physically, it's worth it. If I knew what it was
that made-old-.-risty grown folks want to
abuse children,' I'could make a mni i because
I could prevent it from happening. What we
all know is that there is something wrong
with these people. Somewhere along the line
a connection has not been made.
People share things with people in the
media. Some of it is true and some of it is


not. I have to sift or not sift through a lot of
information that I get from all sorts of people
in all walks of life. Quite frankly there are
times when I wish that people didn't tell me
things. A lot of the info is really stuff that.
can't be proven, but my instinct tells me that
it's true. So, it gets filed away in the back of'
my mind.
It pains me that some of the information
passed on to me sometimes in\ ol\es people
,who have the trust of the public. Vhich is
one of the reasons people in the media must
walk a fine line when it comes to people
making accusations against people with no
proof..
It' s not that the media dismisses any
information funneled our way, but we have
an obligation to be very, very careful and not
mix hearsay with fact, no matter how well
intentioned the person may be when the info-
mation is given.
Children, young or older, are trusting. They
are even sometimes in awe of people in posi-
tions of authority. Unfortunately, those are
sometimes the very ones who take advantage
of them.
In all fairness, the good ones out-
weigh the bad. There are many more people
who come in direct contact \w ih 3 oung peo-
ple who only want to help them and steer
them in the right direction. I applaud them.
But when I look at certain individu-
als, there are some things that I wish I didn't
know .

Dear Editor,


The Aug. 26 fundraising event in Quincy to endow
a Chipola College scholarship in memory of former
Gadsden County Sheriff W. A. Woodham was a huge
success. We are grateful for your very valuable
assistance in promoting the event. There literally
was an overflow crowd for the occasion, which we
feel was due both to Sheriff Woodham's great popu-
larity and to the tremendous publicity' provided by
area news media.
t truly was a "win-win" situation. W. A.'s many
friends had an opportunity to demonstrate their
respect and appreciation for all he gave to others
during his lifetirpe and the scholarship will honor.
his memory for years to come by enabling deserving
young men and women to further their education at
his alma mater.

Need our support

Dear Editor,

During the last County. Commission meeting our
commissioners took a very important step for the cit-
izens of this county and I, for one, would like them to
know that their work and that of the planning and
zoning commission are deeply appreciated. From
now on all power lines over 70kv will have to
undergo a review process by our county representa-
tives so that the lines can be sited in a logical, most
helpful and least detrimental manner so that real
progress can take place. The effect will be to prevent
unregulated corporations from imposing their will
through the use of eminent domain without citizens at
least having a say about the shape and future of the
county they live in.
A vote will take place at the next County Commis-
sion meeting, where they-will further discuss two
proposed amendments. This effects every citizen in


Response to a Clarion Call

Dear Editor,


Politicians, the press, business leaders and others
have made numerous statements about the need to
reduce crime, poverty and hopelessness in Gadsden
County. Four churches in Gadsden County decided
to do more than talk; they joined forces to make:the
entire Gadsden County community a better and safer
place to live. The churches (Antioch Missionary
Baptist Church, Beulah Hill Missionary Baptist
Church, Deliverance Temple Ministries and' Shiloh
Primitive Baptist Church) held a three-night Commu-
nity Soul Saving Crusade and Tent Revival at the
Robert "Bobby" Nealy Sports Complex in Quincy,
Monday through Wednesday (August 22-24, 2005).
When asked why they joined forces to have this
community crusade, each of the pastors offered their
reasons below:
"We brought our churches together to answer the
Clarion call to go out into the community to help
transform lives and let every person know that they
are important and we want to share God's love with
them." Stated Pastor Titus B. Deas, Jr. of Deliver-
ance Temple Ministries located in the.Hardaway
community.
"I'm a lifelong resident of Gadsden County and
this is the first time in a long time that churches of
different denominations and from different commu-
nities in the county have come together like this."
Stated Rev. Ester Watson, pastor of Shiloh Primitive
Baptist Church in Quincy. "This is a great beginning
to celebrate the good people in Gadsden County
working together to make our community a place of
hope."
"Each night we had greater participation of people
from throughout Gadsden County at this crusade to
save souls and give hope to our people." State Rev.
Matthew M. Carter II, pastor of Beulah Hill Mission-
ary Baptist Church in Gretna. "The entire commu-
nity knows that we are here and that we care, that's
going to make difference is the lives of children and


I guess I will have to say that it is the first
time that I've ever experienced a song in my
life.
It happenedlast Friday night at the W. A.
Woodham Chipola College fund raiser.
So, how do ) ou experience a song you
might ask?
To understand it better maybe I need to
explain exactly what happened.
The event w'as a big success and there
were a lot of people there. Little over 500 I
understand.
They were standing around, talking, hug-
ging, shaking hands, patting each other on
the back and just having a good time.
It was also one of the most diverse groups
of people of any event I've been to in a long,
long time.
I found a seat and did one of my favorite
Things, just sitting and watching,people.
As I watched the cro\ d mix and mingle I
had the feeling of being at home and among
friends.
I watched as people would walk across the
crowded room to speak to an old friend.
I heard two friends talk about some pleasant
memory that they had shared years ago.
I listened to the sounds of people as they
spoke to each other in passing.
As I was sitting there a song came to me
from out of the blue. It wasn't being played
over the P.A. system either by the way, it just
came to my mind.
That song was perfect for what I was see-
ing and hearing at that particular moment.
The second verse says it best, however the
whole song still applies.,
Here are the words to that verse that I
heard as I sat watching those people enjoy
each other:
"The colors oj the rainbow, so bright up in
the sky.
Are, also on the faces of the people passing
by.
I see friends shakin' hands, saying ,
How do you do ? They'-re really saying I love


adults."
"We didn't ask for a grant, we didn't ask for a cor-
porate donation, we just brought our respective
church congregations together to answer the ques-
tion: Am I my brother's keeper?" 'Stated Rev. Lloyd
Graham, pastor of Antioch Missionary Baptist
Church in Quincy. "Yes we are our brothers keeper
and Jesus tells us that whatever we do for anyone else
we do it for him."

Matt Carter

Excellent job

Dear Editor,

In response to that subject of encephalitis, please
know the county is not doing all it could to help control
these mosquitos. After numerous calls I succeeded in
getting the ditches on our road pulled. Probably, was
done when they had planned to anyway. And let me
quickly add the Road and Bridges has been excellent at
keeping our road graded!
But, getting the ditches pulled was another matter.
And finally done, they now, with all our current rains,
just sit and hold water because the culverts beneath the
driveways were not un blocked, nor do the ditches fall
with the lay of the land, nor could the secondary ditches
drain anyway.
Because the main ditches along the main roads are
uncleaned and access from the secondary to the primary
ditches remain blocked. So the water goes nowhere and
the mosquitos breed. I am fully aware all problems can
never be. totally solved, but this seems just common
sense in a rainy, mosquito breeding season.

Don Strickland


you.
I could hear Louie Armstrong bellowing
out that song as sure as I was sitting in that
National Guard Armory:
The song fit, the people fit, the time fit, ,
and the cause fit.
I felt that song the rest of the night.
It was great that over $50,000 was raised
to endow a scholarship for a deserving stu-
dent at Chipola College.
The speakers were good, especially Sher-
iff Morris Young who spoke so eloquently of
the former "High Sheriff".
Laurie Beth, Woodham's daughter, spoke
about how her father had raised his three
girls.
She attended with her sisters Amy Jo and
Emily, as well as their mother Donna Beth.
Robert Trammell and James Harold
Thompson spoke of their friendship with
Woodham arid his influences on their lives.
Sheriff David Harvey from Wakulla County
gave some anecdotes on what it was like to
have Woodham as a fellow sheriff.
I enjoyed hearing Walter Dover and the
rest of the "Villagers" sing.
It ,\as very special and brought back
memories of sitting by my transistor radio
and listening to the very tunes they harmo-
nized so well.
The "Embers", a group from South Car-
olina, played for the dance that was held
after the speeches were finished. They too,
were good.
All in all it was a good night to remember
a friend to Gadsden County.
I think W. A. would have liked it, espe-
cially knowing that the money would be
used by some kid, like him, to one day get a
college education.
Like all events, especially of that size,
'there were a few glitches. It was a little hot
and few people didn't get fed.
But, like the song says, "it is a wonderful
world" and I got to see a little of it Friday
Night.

A little mosquito changed his life


Local minister glad to be married when encephalitis struck


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

For one local man, warnings in the media
about West Nile Virus. and encephalitis mos-
quito born viruses are not taken lightly.
Glenn Mitchell, minister of Centenary
Methodist Church, was last year's local resident
who contracted the dreaded West Nile virus.
For Mitchell it would turn into full blown
encephalitis. '
Only one in ohe hunid id 'We st NileYirusa :,.
patients ends. upL \ih encephalits COf tiho.e xhoi
get encephalitis 80 percent don't survive.
Mitchell is still on the mend after a year of
battling the disease. He still has some memory,
loss and sometimes is slow to respond when
spoken to. Not because he doesn't know what to
say, but because encephalitis affects the inner
workings of the brain. It is the part of the brain
that lets you say what you are thinking that he is
still having a little problem with.
This is Mitchell's account of what happened r.t
him a year ago.
Mitchell said he came home in late July last
year from Atlanta where he'and a local youth
group had been working on an innner-city gar-
den.
There had been several accounts of West Nile
in humans in the Atlanta area when he was there
and he feels that is probably where he was bit-
ten.
"The.incubation time of seven to ten days for
the virus coincides with my trip to Atlan He
thought he had flu symptoms with aching mus-
cles and a fever.
That would change on the morning of August
12 during Hurricane Charley.
Mitchell woke up having a seizure and a bad .
one at that.
His temperature was topping 106 degrees and
he said all he remembers was telling Gaye, his .
wife of only six weeks, at the time, he was sick.
Mitchell will tell you quickly that had it not
been for his wife being there that morning, he

doesn't believe he would be here tiodai
"I had been living alone and we had just got-
ten married a few weeks earlier. If she had not
been in the house,.I.don't know how anyone
would have known I was sick," Mitchell said.
His wife called 9-1-1 after finding him having a
seizure:
I am absolutely convinced that had we not
been married I would not be here," Mitchell
said.
Mitchell remembers very little that happened
over the next few minutes.
He did have another seizure while waiting on
the paramedics to come. His high temperature,
he feels, contributed to those seizures.
Mitchell said he could remember the para-
medics trying to get him out of the house.
Mitchell lives in the church's.parsonage, a two
story house with narrow stairways, the first'
problem the paramedics encountered try to get


him out of the house.
He vaguely remembers the emergency room,
but remembers well being put in an ice bed to
help drop his temperature.
:Over the next ten days' Mitchell's body and his
doctors fought off encephalitis. He has no mem-
ory he said of those ten days in intensive care,
but has been told he was given a lot of antibi-
otics and steroids to fight off the high fever.
Mitchell next went to rehab where he spent
'threC'ediire weeks recuperating ...,... ..
: Atvthatpoint he s.iid Ihc.', stilll in "pilcii bad -
h-ipe"'' He was having trouble with his balance
and speaking. "I knew how to speak, I just
couldn't form the words."
His recovery time he was told would take
from 18 months to two years. The good news is
that he should recover all of his faculties. "It is
just going to take time," Mitchell said. The doc-
tors explained that the way the virus affected
him was similar to someone taking a filing cabi-
net full of hundreds of files and dumping them
on the floor. The files are still there; but not
where they are supposed to be.
His recovery would be to put alrof his files
(memories and thought processes) back where ,
they belonged. Old time memories are back he
said, more recent memories however are slow in
coming.
He has some trouble sleeping. he said, his
brain seems to want to stay active all the time.
Another symptom that he is working through.
Mitchell said his doctors are confident that his
brain will heal itself.
His recovery.did not go unnoticed. He said
that.the CDC in Atlanta had interviewed him for
their study on the West Nile Virus and
encephalitis.
He preached his first short sermon in January
and has been gradually working his way back to
full time.
Mitchell is thankful for the congregation at
Centenary; "The congregation here has been

up the water with everything else.
Water in our eyesight puts out fire, but
this test resulted in the fire burning up
the water. Is God the same today? Or
has he lost any of his power. Dear
Lord, please help us to realize who you
are. Apostle Paul wrote I can do all
things through Christ which strength-
ens me, not myself. We need to bind
our faith and trust together, don't be
afraid to ask God for traveling mercy
and protection up and down 'these
wonderful highways, that he provided
for our safety; that are destroying lives
needlessly. We need to change the
hearts and minds of humanity and help
us to seek the Lord for the saving of
souls and lives. Satan is out to kill and
destroy. Lord you are still able to
change minds let this mind be in you
that was in Christ Jesus. Lord Jesus
this, is your world and everything in it,
help us keep our focus on Jesus. It's
time for a change. It is time for the peo-
ple of God to join together in one mind
and one heart Matthew 18:19 Where
two or three are gathered in his name
touching and agreeing on anything
there I will be, to bless the needy no
matter whatever it is. We may be like
the Canaanite woman Matt. 17:21
when she recognized her daughter was
vexed with the devil, she could see the
devil in another but when she realized
the saying of Jesus she said Lord help


me. She received help for herself and
her daughter, we need help to realize
our faith shortages even though-we are,
not on drugs, etc. Are we trusting and
believing God for a change .according
to our faith. Isaiah 1 the ox knows his
master's crib, but my people seem like
they are forgetting where our blessings
come from. Come now, let us reason
together, sajth the Lord. It is not too
late. God can cause this to be a better
year in every way, we need to forget
how good we are and look jt the result
of releasin g ur, faith and,,it God use,
each of us to reach out to God ,foil elpi
for us all. We all need to obey the voice
and word of God. St. John 14; if ye
abide in you and ask what ye will it
will be done. Lord please increase our
faith. It is time for a change.

Marriage

does last! 1

Sherman, Anna

Williams married A

60 years

In today's time of unpredictable
changes, marriage can still last.
According to statistics. many mar-
riages are ending in divorce shortly
after the honeymoon. 7
This doesn't leave much hope for
those desiring a life commitment in
marriage. But there is hope and here
is proof.
Sherman A. Williams and Anna L.
Williams have lived up to their \\ed-
Jing vows for 60 years. The couple
was united in holy marimnon. on
September 4, 1945 in Tifton. GA.
Mr. Williams was in the military and
shortly after the wedding left for
Japan. When he returned, they
:. ltJ to Mhidway, FL. and have
h,1cc :.ticc together ever since
Both attribute their faith in God as
the major factor for the longevity of
their marriage. They know loving
"and respecting each other is real -
important. In marriage, a couple must
trust and support each other. Each
agrees, "We can do all things through
Christ who strengthens, us.
The message they send to thius gen-
eration is that marriage is -what the
two people make of it. It does take
hard work but if the two are x% dling. -
a good marriage is possible. Mar-
riage does last. Deacon and Mother
.Williams are proof and we thank God
for their example.

of all the services we offer our customers. It makes it easy for you to select the perfect
wedding or shower gift because you know it's exactly what the bride is looking for.
The engaged couple registers their preferences in china, crystal, flatware and giftware. We
record this and update the list as gifts are purchased to avoid duplicates.
Visit us the text time you're shopping for wedding or shower gifts. We'll help you select a
gift the bride really wants. We'll even gift-wrap it. And the service is free!

with me and loved me through the
recovery. I'm really glad God sent
me here."
He was also thankful for having
Dr. Diana Byrd as his family
physician and a church member.
"She was really a strength through-
out my recovery," Mitchell said.
Byrd passed away earlier this
year.
His wife Gaye was his God send,
he said.
"She has been great in taking
care of me. Through it all she has
said she would love me no matter
what," Mitchell said.
As for his faith, Mitchell said
that God gave him the strength, the
support and the foundation to sur-
vive. "I know God has some-
thing for me to do," Mitchell said.
SHe added that God gave him the
strength to manage the things that
come his way.
"Thankfully I had good health,
good doctors and good people to
help me through it."
Mitchell said he understood that
because of confidentiality reasons
names of people who have con-
'tracted encephalitis were not made
public. However, he said that if'
someone has contracted the virus
and would like to talk to him he
was available at 850-627-9226.
County Health Department direc-
tor Jerry Wynn said Tuesday that
another case of encephalitis was
reported in Suwannee County.
It is recommended that everyone,
especially children and older peo-
ple, take precautions to avoid mos-
quitos. Stay inside at night, and use
a repellent if you have to go out-
side. The life you save may be
your own, Wynn said.

No formal action was taken in
the matter pending a response from
the county.
In other business:
County commissioner Eugene
Lamb told the council that within
two months the county would start
repaving Highway 12 and that there
were plans to start on Iron Bridge
road as well.
Council members approved an
additional $24,000 to be spent on
painting and sandblasting one of
the city's water towers.
Approved the use of the the
Havana Community Park for a Sep-
tember llth memorial service by
the .Havana Ministerial Associa-
tion. The event will be held from
5:30 to 7:30 Sunday afternoon.
Approved the Centennial Steering
Committee's recommendation to
allow the North American Railroad
Operators Association to bring a
work car and possibly others to the
Centennial event.
Approved the towns use of Indigo
Key, a minority owned consulting
firm that helps Florida cities find
local and regional bidders for their
contracts.
* Council members heard from
Freiden concerning the potential
rise in gas prices. Hurricane Kat-
rina, she said, would probably have
a large impact on prices. She.said
she had received a notice from one
of the city's providers that some
price raises were looming in the
future. Council member Bob
Miller said that the city needed to
alert citizens, of the possible
changes and he recommended that
residents start conserving energy.
"This is going to have a subtle
effect in everything we do," Frei-,
den said.

some non-profit organizations can
access funds for items such as vans
to transport the elderly. He said a
program called "Communities for a
Lifetime" is specifically designed to
help the elderly. "There are start up
dollars to assist with elderly prob-
lems. Every year we've (Dept. of
Elderly Affairs) recieved an increase
in funding, so the money is there,"
he said.
One week before Hurricane Kat-
rina hit Florida, experts were
informing the rural county partici-
pants on the state's mitigation pro-
grams from the Division of Emer-
gency Management. If a hurricane
hits our area, mitigation programs
will play a large part in our survival
and recovery. The program is the
first of four phases of emergency
management: mitigation, prepared-
ness, response, and :recovery. The
most important is mitigation
because it is the action taken that
reduces or eliminates long-term risk
to people and property for natural
hazards and their effects. It includes
such things as structural retrofitting
(such as wind-proofing, flood-
proofing) and the purchase. and
demolition or elevation of flood-
prone structures and minor drainage
improvements.
There are funds available for coun-
ties to prepare for natural disasters.
The key. they %%ere advised, is to
ask.
Richard Polangin from the Florida
Department of Health discussed the
rural health initiatives. "One pro-
gram we have is called Closing The
Gap and it is a five million dollar
grant award over a three-year
cycle," he said.
Polangin'urged the counties pres-
ent to apply for the grant now

Dixon said. He said last week that

However, the county did not have to
activate that plan because Ashford

the problem.

because the next funding cycle is
July 2006. When applying for the
grant he urged counties to show
local board support and a high
degree of participation from health
care professionals, and to organize
with other partners.
"The more people you can show
who are involved, the better your
chances of receiving the grant," he
said.
Carol Vickers explained how
Gadsden County will pilot a pro-
gram for district-wide school health
projects. The program, Vickers said,
will be coordinated by Quincy's
mayor Sherrie Taylor.
Counties were also advised to
apply for the $50,000 set-aside from
the Tobbacco Fund for each county.
"Gadsden County ought to apply,"
Vickers said.
Other programs explained
throughout the day included rural
economic initiative, Opportunity
Florida, Enterprise Florida, North-
west Florida Water Management,
Community Contribution Tax Credit
and Rural Job Tax Credit, environ-
mental protection, block grant assis-
tance, communities trust programs
and more.
"Today these, counties have been
shown how to access millions of
dollars in federal and state funds.
Richardson said that the idea of the
workshop was' his, the credit for
making it a reality goes to his staff.
"They have worked on this for two
months bringing it together."
"I hope you all take advantage of
the resources the state has to offer
for rural communities,"
Richarddson said.

Speeding

Continued from Page 1

if you were going to die from speed-
ing, would you.
For those that cannot take their
feet off the pedal, the police depart-
ment has a plan for you. "We are
going to star enforcing the traffic
la\ws more stringent than \\e ha\e
in the past." The department
has nine radar guns and one Lazer
Gun.that can detect your speed, and
officers now have them in their cars.
In addition; o,'er the pias't t
months the cit\ has been installing'
speed' umps in neighborhoods to
glow traffic down where children are'
playing. They are annoying to some
drivers, but they do what they are
intended to, do and slow down traf-
fic. Beach said he did not want
people to consider Quincy a speed
trap, but in the same respect he

wanted citizens to slow down.
How bad is the problem?
Tuesday morning, supervisor of
the QPD's traffic unit and traffic
homicide investigator Calvin Carter
set up a speed check on Pat Thomas
Parkway a few blocks from the
Quincy Post Office. In that
thirty minute period of time several
hundred cars 'passed by officer
Carter. Of those checked with the
police department's Lazer only a
handful were at or under the posted
35 mph. The majority were ten mph
or more over the posted limit.
"I could easily write 20 or more
tickets a shift just targeting those
doing 15 mph over the limit," Carter
said.
He said the city will not write a
ticket unless someone is going more
than 7 mph (school zones are
exempt) over the speed limit:With
that as a gauge, Carter said he could
easily top 60 tickets in any given
shift.
He estimated that eight out of
every 10 cars he sees meet that stan-
dard. "A lot of people think they
have a ten mph buffer, but they
don't," Carter said..
Carter held the Lazer on one car as
it sped into town. The gun clicked
and hummed and then locked in on
the, speeding car at 61 mph. The
driver was oblivious to Carter, who
was standing beside his patrol car in
plain sight, only a few feet from the
edge of Pat Thomas Parkway. As the
driver passed in his little white car.
.he was holding a cell phone to his
ear and leaning on his armrest. he
may have been comfortable, but he
was still speeding.
Carter looked over his shoulder
and commented. "It was his lucky
day.". Had Carter decided the fel-
low deserved a ticket, it would have
cost him $202.50 ($352.50 if it hap-
pened to be in a school zone or. con-
struction site) for 26 mph over the
speed limit..
Not only does speed kill, it
also costs a lot if you get caught
Carter said.\ A 15 mph speed-
ing ticket can wipe out someone's
take home pay, Carter said.
If you think you can beat
Carter, at his speeding game, you
may want to think about it.
He holds up the Lazer gun and


points at an oncoming car. "See that
red dot? I can place that dot on a
moving vehicle up to 1,000 feet
away and get a speed reading."
The dot is similar to a laser beam
used on shooting equipment or sur-
veying equipment.
At 1,000 feet the beam is
less than twelve inches across. The
closer he is the narrower the beam.
In other words, their is no doubt
which car Carter has picked out of a
pack of cars as they head into
Quincy.
Carter has done this for a while and
although he uses the gun for the
legal ramification in court, he knows
his speeders. "That truck is
doing 49 mph," Carter said as he
pointed the gun at the truck, a few
seconds later 49 comes up in the left
window and the distance, 384 feet
comes up in the right window.
Another lucky fellow gets a break.
Although Carter. is offi-
cially over traffic, all of the Quincy
police officers can write speeding
tickets and Carter helps train the
new officers. The idea is to get
the officer comfortable with being
able to tell who is speeding and who
is not. "So we stand here and learn
how to determine their speed and
then put the Lazer or radar gun on
the car."
Not only is it hard to beat
Carter at his game, his Lazer can trip
you up as well. "I don't need to
spend a lot of time getting a fix on a
vehicle. I just- point and shoot. By
the time the Lazer detector goes off
I've got you already recorded."
That is another reason
Carter says hew, officers need to
learn how to detect speeders and
then use the speed guns. C a r t e r
and the Quincy police department
have held trvo traffic checkpoints in
the last ten days as another deterent
to speeding and breaking the traffic
laws. Those two, lasting only a
couple of hours each. ha e netted 30
citations. to arrests and one "am-
ing. Over two hundred vehicles
were checked in the t\ o traffic road.
blocks.
Just in traffic violations
alone the QPD has issued over 333
citation. For September one is
planned for the 7th on King Street in.
front of QEA and on the llth on


South Adams Street near the New
Philadelphia Presbyterian Church.
"We plan to have at least one check-
point a month and more if we can,"
Carter said.
In addition to speeding the
QPD and Carter will be watching
for other traffic violations as well.
"We want to put a stop to u-turns
downtown," Carter said. The u-
turns are dangerous, especially those
along Jefferson Street, something he
wants to see stop happening.
This weekend, Labor Day,
is the last weekend of summer and
the weekend that runs the vehicle
fatalities up all across the country.
Drinking and speeding don't mix,
and local and state law enforcement
officers will be out in force to make
sure people obey the traffic laws and
do not drink and drive.
No mention was made of a
special checkpoint in Quincy for the
holiday, however Carter said QPD
will be working closely with the
"Hands Across the Border" event tb
kick-off at Chiles High School in
Leon County. This event will
bring together many of the state ard
local law enforcement officers in
Florida, Georgia and Alabama to
crack down on drinking and driving.
Another car speeds by as
Carter is talking, instinctively he
tells the speed, 54 he said. No need
to look: Carter knows his speeders
and the question then becomes, do
you want to know officer Carter?

Third










With the problems going on in New
Orleans and on the Gulf Coast it's kind
of hard to get excited about the begin-
ning of the college football season.
But the season is here and with it
comes my weekly column matching
my wits against guest predictors.
Last year I managed to break e\ en
defeating 6 of my opponents and also
losing to 6.
I begin this 28th year of doing this


with a nice Greensboro lads as m
opponent.
Patsy Willis a true Florida Gator
football fan is in her 31st year teaching
school in the Gadsden county school
system.
29 of those years have been at
.Greensboro where she currently
instructs.
The former Patsy Cockrell of
Panama City she got her tie to Gadsden
County when she met her husband.
Bill, at of all places FSU, from where
she earned her Education degree.
Bill attended FSU for a semester
between terms at the University of
Florida where he returned to and
receive his degree in ForestrN. Bill has
recently retired from the lumber busi-
ness and he's not the only Willis tied to
UF. He and Patsy's oldest daughter,
Kini. graduated from Gator countrI
and is now' employed by a distribution


company in Tallahassee. The Willis'
middle child. son Chris. has recently
graduated with a Agri- Business
degree. Their youngest daughter Sal-
lie, a senior at Munroe. plans to attend
LU when she graduates next spring.
Sallie who is on the volleyball, bas-
ketball, and softball team at the MNl.
Pleasant school keeps Patsy and Bill
plenty occupied.
But, they're excited to be more
occupied as UF football season, with a
new look, approaches.
Let's see how she and I approach this
week's picks.
Patsy says.... N
FLORIDA o\ er WYOMING.....Urban
has to take his first one.
MIAMI over FSU.....I don't like
pulling for either one of these teams.
FAMU o\er DELAWARE
STATE.....All my good friend FAMlU
fans are Gator fans.


VANDY over WAKE
FOREST.....Vandy's an SEC team.
AUBURN over GEORGLAU
TECH.....I'm not sure why
KENTUCKY over LOUISVILLE.....I
like going to Kentucky.
CLEMSON OVER TEXAS
A@M.....I'll pick this one out of the
air.
VIRGINIA TECH over N.C.
STATE.....NI\ son Chris picked this
one.
GEORGIA o\er BOISE
STATE... Bulldogs a lot stronger.
SOUTH CAROLINA over CENTRAL
FLORIDA.... I'm pulling for Steve.
I ay.....
FLORIDA over WYOMING.....This
game isn't a sure thing. Wyoming is
ranked as high as 21 in some polls.
MIAMI over FSU.....Canes will put too
much pressure on Nole's young qb.
FAMU over DELAWARE STATE.....A


good match up but Rattler's should
have enough excitement too take this
one.
WAKE FOREST over VANDY.....Both
teams need %\ ins anytime they can get
them. Deacs take this early one.
LOUISVILLEo\ er
KENTUCKY..... Might wind up being
like a basketball score.
CLEMSON over TYEXAS
A@Ml.....Tigers growl at home.
N.C. STATE over VIRGINIA
TECH.....An opening week upset.
GEORGIA o\er BOISE STATE... .It
could be an entertaining game but the
heat should get to the Bronco's.
SOUTH CAROLINA over CENTRAL
FLORIDA ....A big start for Spurrier.

And I hope a big start for me as Patsy
and I disagree THREE times.


Gettin' it together
Sometimes it's hard to tell who's having the most fun, the kids or the coaches. But one thing is certain, these junior NFL stars are learning the game. Practice for the fall season is
underway at the Quincy Parks and Recreation Department leagues.

Chiles Runs by East

Gadsden 35-27
It's not that the East Gadsden Jaguars can't score
points. It's just they can't stop the other team.
Or they didn't Friday night. For the second straight
year the\ lost their season opener to Chiles, this time
by a 35-27 score. .
Chiles rolled up over 400 yards of offense in the
game and had 2 backs gain 100 as Darnell Jordan
rushed for 165 and Charles Shelton had 100.
Jordon scored 3 of the Timberwolves touchdowns
running for an 18 yarder in the first quarter, a 50 yarder
in the second and then" getting a 4 yarder in the fourth.
East Gadsden scored the games first touchdown:
when Ricky Gennie caught a 30 yard scoring pass from
Harry Betsey putting the Jaguars up 7-0 after a Robert
Russ conversion kick.
Matt Fleck's 3 yard t.d. run helped even things for


Lady Panthers


open with a


pair of wins

by Joe Ferolito
West Gadsden rallied from a seven point deficit in the
fourth match against Wewahitchka last Thursday., It
allowed them to escape and go on to win the match 3
sets to 2.
It was an important finish for. the Lady Panthers
because Wewahitchka is a new district opponent this
year.
Wewa had won the fist set 25-22 before the Lady Pan-
thers came back to take the second set 25-18.
It was the Lady Gators turn in set number 3 which they
took 25-19.
Set number 4 was going Wewa's way also as they led
18-11. Scoring by Brianna Atkins and Bianca Robinson
got the Lady Panthers back to a tie before they finally
took the match 26-24.
Robinson then led West Gadsden with 5 points to help
the Lady Panthers win .the rubber match 15-9 and the
game.
"I was proud of the way we came back." First year
West Gadsden coach, Patricia McMillian, said. "Wewa
played very well and had the upper hand before we
broke serve and evened the game."
It was the Lady Panthers second win of the week.
Tuesday they defeated Rickards 3 sets to none win-
ning, 25-22, 25-14, and 25-19.
Candise Walker, Marla James, and Crishaundria Ward
all had big scoring serves for West Gadsden. Chelsea
McMillian and Atkins controlled the nets.
The Lady Panthers next match was Wednesday
August 31 when they met East Gadsden at the Lady
Jaguars home gym.


the TimberWolves before Jordan's first touchdown put
Chiles up 14-7.
A Betsey pass to Darius Jackson for a 29 yard pay
dirt strike made it 14-13 early in quarter 2.
Both teams squandered opportunities before the half
to leave it at 14-13 at intermission.
After intermission the Timberwolves scored 21 .
unanswered points on 2 of Jordans touchdowns and on
a 25 yard scoring pass that Daniel Bryant caught from
Justin Wright. Wriglit also kicked all 5 Chiles extra
points.
Trailing 35-13, East Gadsden made a run. Willie
Johnson returned Chiles last kick-off 71 yards to Tim-
berwolf 19 setting up a 4 yard scoring run by Jackson.
After holding Chiles the Jaguars got another score
when Betsy hit Gennie with a 45 yard scoring tbss.
That came with 3:39 left in the game. The Timber-
wolves got the ball and ran out the clock ending any
hope of a Jaguar comeback.
East Gadsden will try to even their record Friday
night when they play their first home game of the sea-,
son hosting FAMU High in a 7:30 pm start.

Bolles, bowls over

West Gadsden 57-0
by Cale Wheeler
There was no doubt the West Gadsden Panthers
were going to have their hands full Friday night.
Their opponent the Bolles School out of Jack-
sonville is ranked 9th in the country by Sports Illus-
trated among High School Athletic programs.
The Panthers found out why as Bolles rolled to an
easy and impressive 57-0 win.

8 rushes and scored 4 touchdowns to lead Bolles to a
31-0 halftime lead. His scoring runs were from 3, 9,

Crop disaster, livestock
program deadlines near
.State Executive Director, Kevin
Kelley, today urged farmers and
ranchers to sign-up for the Crop
Disaster Program (CDP) and Live-
stock Assistance Program (LAP) in
advance of the approaching dead-
line.
For the CDP 2003 and 2004, the
sign-up deadline is Sept. 9, 2005.
For the CDP 2005, the enrollment
period ends Dec. 16, 2005. The
CDP provides assistance to produc-
ers w ho suffered 2003, 2004 or
2005-crop losses as the result of
damaging weather or related'condi-
tions.
The 2005 crop losses are limited
to those losses caused by a hurri-
cane season .in counties that had a
Presidential disaster declaration.
Nearly $2 billion has been paid to
producers since sign-up began in
mid-March 2005.
Producers can receive disaster
benefits for crop losses for only
one of the 200,3 2004 or 2005 crop
years.
Hol\ever. if a producer has been
paid a CDP pal ment for a 2003 or
2004 crop loss and is subsequently
approved for. a CDP payment for a
greater 2005 crop loss, the amount
of the 2003 or 2004 payment will
be deducted from the 2005 pay-
ment and the difference will be
paid to the producer.
The sign-up period for LAP 2003
and 2004 ends Sept. 9. The LAP
provides payments to livestock
producers :for grazing losses that
occurred in 2003 or 2004.

Emergency management deals with 'just in case' preparations
!9 -1


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Friday morning when Hurricane
Katrina turned, north after leaving
south Florida soaked, sqggy and
much of it without power, the Gads-.
den County Emergency Manage-
ment team met to map out strategies
just in case the most powerful hurri-
cane in decades made landfall at
Apalalchicola.
"We're looking at a category 3 or
4. When it turns northeast it will
really accelerate," -said Shawn
Woods, Director of Emergency
Management. There was a tenseness
in the air as Woods took roll call of
the various municipalities and
departments that would be impacted
most if Katrina turned toward the
Panhandle.
Woods warned that if predictions
from the National Weather Service
held true, Gadsden County could be
looking at a minimum of two mil-
lion dollars in damages following 20
inches of rain and 120 mile per hour
winds. "We're saturated already
from recent rains," Woods told the
group.,
But Gadsden County didn't have
to worry about Katrina, except for a
few showers Monday afternoon and
a tornado watch for most of Monday
night. A lightning strike knocked out
power to the county jail Monday
afternoon and for a while, they oper-
ated on back-up generators.
Katrina spread her chaos to our


west, between Pensacola and New
Orleans. Gadsden County was not
an area for a desginated shelter but
Agriculture Extension Agent Dr.
Henry Grant said that several evac-
uees from Mississippi housed their
horses at the Livestock Pavilion.
"The county is a designated area for
livestock and companion animals,"
Grant said.
Wood said this area was spared.
"We have been blessed. If it had hit
us, it would have been a major prob-
lem . there is no way to prepare
for something like this."
The toll of dead continues to rise
even as parts of Mississippi and
Louisiana were still under water.
Graphic photos of people clinging to
rooftops waiting to be rescued have
flashed across television screens
since Monday night.
Wednesday morning six mem-
bers of the Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Department were dispatched to
Mississippi. Sheriff Morris Young
said the request for help came
through the Florida Sheriff's Associ-
ation.
Those headed to Mississippi are
.Lt. Joe Hall, Sgt. Brenden Mitchell,
Capt. Doug Brown, Deputy Joe
Barnes, Deputy Kenny Lewis, and
Sgt. Shelton Pratt. "They will be
gone from 10-14 days. I'm not sure
what their assignments will be,"
Young said. In order to makeup for
the shortfall in his office, Young said
other deputies will be moved around
to .cover for those who have gone' to

help the hurricane victims.
While we may not have felt the
direct brunt of the hurricane, we will
feel the increases in the prices of
fuel and petroleum. At least two oil
rigs were pulled from their moorings
and are floating in the Gulf of.Mex-
ico. One bridge was closed when a
rig became stuck in the Mobile
River. Oil futures briefly climbed
above $70 per barrel for the first
time.

EVACUEES SAFE
Quincy native Dr. Chancellor
Donald and his wife, Dr. Alicia Don-
ald, left.New Orleans about midday
Sunday. They both work 'at four


major hospitals in New Orleans,
including Tulane and Charity. "My
wife had gotten off from work Sat-
urday morning after working a 30-
hour shift. I'm actually on vacation
and after it was determined that we
were not on call, we headed for
Florida," he said.
The trip, which usually takes a
little more than five'hours, took the
Donalds approximately 13 hours.
"The traffic was bumper to bumper
for the most part. There were spurts
when we could get up to forty miles
per hour," he said. With most of the
evacuees headed west to Houston or
north to interior Mississippi, the
Dofialds thought it might be easier if


ing three days straight with only a
couple hours of sleep. "I have been
able to talk with some people at
Tulane. They mainly wanted to
know what is happening because
they have no (mass) communica-
tions with the outside world. There
are no televisions for them to actu-
ally see what is going on," he said.
Donald has been.able to share with
them what the rest of the nation is
seeing and experiencing.
As for when they'll be able to get
back to work, they don't know. "I
understand that there is a bridge out
'near Perisacola and my colleagues
tell me that the waters are still rising
in New Orleans. We just don't
know," he said.

TO HELP

Chris Floyd, director of emer-
gency services for the Capital Area
Chapter of the American Red Cross,
advises that cash is best. "It's the
financial donations that are really.
needed," he said. Floyd said it is
logistically impractical for people to
donate bottled water, canned goods,
clothing and other items. By donat-
ing cash, the Red Cross can buy
these items in bulk at discount
prices.

ments recommend contributions to

Commissioners almost ready to adopt this year's budget


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor'
The board of county commis-
sioners held its final workshop on
the budget before the public gets
to weigh in on it in two public
hearings. These will be held Sep-
tember 12 and 26 at 6 p.m. in the
Board of County Commissioners
meeting room. Tuesday's work-
shop was held in order to clear up
added evpenditured thatl impacted
on the balanced budget presented
by the county manager.
'Like the Clerk of the Courts
threat to take the board of county
commissioners to court if they
reduced his budget by 38 percent.
While no figures were discussed,
County Manager Marlon Brown
said that he and the clerk were


close to an agreement.
"General\ speaking. I'm
really not in favor of this board
dictating to the clerk what he
needs to operate his office," said
Commissioner Sterling Watson.
He added that he does not support
establishing a budget director's
position. "I don't know \%hat that
person would be doing for eight
hours a day for six months (the
nionrl'hs v.hen.theie i. sno btudge
%%ork). I would d like to see the
money put back to fund the
clerk." Money from the clerk's
budget w'as to fund the budget
director's position.
Commissioner Brenda Holt
said she favors a budget director
because one person should not be
the only person "looking at the


number,". Commissioner Eugene
Lamb agreed with W\atson that the
budget director should not be a
full-time position. "It should be a
seasonal position...call him in to
do the budget work and when it's
completed send him on his way,"
Lamb said.
Chairman Ed Dixon said all of
this could have been avoided if
Nicholas Thomas had appeared
before di.e board and defended his
budget.'"If \%e hate questions to
ask. \%e can't ask them if the\
don't show up," Dixon said.
He said he was disappointed that
Thomas didn't show up for any of
the previous meetings to explain
his budget as other constitutional
officers had. He said, he consid-
ered Thomas to be a friend


because, after all, they once
flipped hamburgers together at-
Hardees in their early years.
"The manager could only jus-
tify $300,000 for the clerk's
budget. I don't mind giving him
what he wants, but he has to jus-
tify it to this board. If the man-
ager is wrong, prove it to this
board," Dixon said.
The board-also considered the
iequet.s of non-profit organiza-
tions. Lamb said he would like to
see a paper trail from organiza-
tions showing how they best
ser- e the public. "I favor a strict
check and balance on all non-
profit organization," Lamb said.
Holt agreed with Lamb about
strict checks on non-profit organi-
zations and said she wants the


same from the Chamber of Com-
merce. "I want to see a package
from the Chamber of Commerce,"
Holt said. The chamber has asked
for $37,000 in this year's budget.
In other matters, Dixon said he
was concerned about the growth
in Midway. He said the 600-800
homes on quarter-acre plots cur-
rently being or that will be con-
structed in Midway is a problem.
"Are t\e_going to let everybody
put in a septic tank with feces
down the street? Is that the kind
of growth we want? Is that the
quality of life.we want in Gads-
den County?" Dixon asked. He
said the county will invest now in
infrastructure like sewer, water,
and streets or it will pay later.
He said developers ought to be


required to hook on with existing
sewer lines. 'They're (Talquin
Electric) hooking up to businesses
in Midway because big business
pays. People don't pay that's why
it's up to government to step up,"
he said.
Watson said he also opposed a
community relations/governmen-
tal relations position for the
county. "I think it's a waste of
$25,000 to hire a public relations
person," he said.
Holt disagreed, saying the /
county has an image problem and
"it is absolutely necessary" to
have a person on staff full-time
for the county's benefit. ,"We had
the chamber working on that and
they didn't do anything," Holt
said.

"Because of its location, Florida
is a sitting duck. We have been very
lucky. We were spared last year. It's
unfortunate that the people who live
inland, like we do, have to pay for

ties," Thomas said. He added that
homewoners have, in the past,
underpaid for insurance. "Premiums
are just starting, to catch up with
actual costs," he said, explaining
that a $400 per month homeowners
insurance policy cannot pay for a
$200,000 home and its contents.

deluge o'f calls from his customers
concerning he rate increase. Nor has
Reginald Bryant of Allstate. "People
have been paying a monthly sur-
charge of $2 since 1992, after Hurri-
cane Andrew. That fund had built
up, but last year when four hurri-
canes hit, claims depleted that fund
and left a deficit. So it was decided
that instead of paying $2, everybody
had to pay 7 percent," Bryant said.
Still, those hardest .hit will be
people who live on the coast. Their
insurance is going up much moire
than those of us who live inland,
according to Bryant.
